The Aurora Symphony Orchestra opens the season with an electrifying evening featuring the full-throttled drama and sweeping intensity of Stravinsky's timeless ballet music of The Firebird. ASO's principal cellist Kenneth Martin joins in the performance of the incomparable Cello Concerto by Edward Elgar. It is Rossini's birthday and his Il signor Bruschino Overture opens a concert program that is designed to keep you on the edge of your seat.


Don't forget to arrive 30 minutes early for Maestro Gamboa's pre-concert talk featuring insightful discussions and interesting facts about the repertoire. Pre-concert talks are included with your concert ticket.

Rossini - Il signor Bruschino Overture
Elgar - Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85
